Like tall palm trees

The journey began as a joke
Till giant strides together yoked,
And there we stood, exchanging vows
Inner me smiled, exclaiming; wow !!!

Like a palm tree gallantly firm
Amidst the dust, and in the storm
Growing so tall, far from a fall
Never scared of heavy down pour

Instead making rich palm wine sap
And thick red oil that never slaps
May we never be affected
By seasons, no matter how red.

Sonnet: The homily of family

Friends have turn necks
As storm comes to wreck.

If not you, then who,
Do I reach out to,

In times, I am low,
That will still follow.

I really love you
Oh yes, it is true

This is gratitude
Not a platitude.

Every word said
Can be repeated

As a homily
We are family.

Lament on democracy

Two sides are the axis
In every question.
The only stupid question
Is the one never asked

When one end of the shore
Is infected by crowded greed
The other end not tread
Will be rumored as the cure.

Whereas both ends are paths
To the same governance fact.
Whether Hitler won or not
Dishonesty comes by default.

Don’t tell me of other homes
And how theirs have zero germs
Don’t tell me, who I am
Nor say to me, I am a scam

Ask yourself these questions
Are you in perfection
Do you hit fifty percent
Efficiency as a democrat?

I know you are not an Angel,
Our problem is not an emblem
But you and you among them
Who couldn’t win but joined them

Isabella

Isabella
Isabella
Isabella
Whose sperm and egg
Formed your straight legs
And goodie bag.
Cracking the nuts
Your beauty hunts
Inside of it
Blacks do not crack
You never lack
Beautiful marks.

Isabella
Isabella
Isabella
You are pretty
That your beauty
Breaths life to death…
You are so rare
A pretty gel
Lips of Angels
And your dentals
Are so intact
Perfect in racks.

Isabella
Isabella
Isabella
You have this charm
Infectious smile
That takes to miles
Infatuations.
And the passion
In your fashion
Makes many man
Come to Milan
Lust as your fan.

Isabella
Isabella
Isabella
What will beauty
Look like without
You in its vault.
Perfect and fit
You are complete
With half moon lips,
The snow white teeth,
Infectious smile,
And pretty eyes.

Native fly: Greeting a King

Not all chambers are for show
There are highs and there are lows
At the Palace, I hope you know.

Far before the make of phones
From the time of flesh and bone
You may be old but not as the throne

The king of beasts, respects ming
When he hears songs forest sing
And worships; to him, their king.

Any subject who have no prudence
Will eventually bring intense
Sufferings, hunger, and distress

Coated with huge embarrassments
Verboten issues cemented
To himself and his descendants.

When going to a Palace
Kindly ask before a glance
How to greet King; take no chance.

Parent’s Scholasticism

My mothers prudence
Saved me from
Repeating failures.
Her rules and justice
Gave me grace
And self-discipline.

My dads fortitude
Made me to
Conquer my demons
His great temperance
Counselled me
To abstaining excuses.

During the times of
Bruise and stitch
I recall my parents
And all they thought me
Then I feel
No pain, but healing.

Haiku: Deeper than depth

Aw..! I fell for her
Billion feet is shallower
Unlike mine for her.

My parents glow

Unravelled treasures
The best of pleasures
In all the major
Riches to measure
Yet my parents hold
In God’s writing, bold
Alphabets of load
Yet searching for gold!
All their sectors glow
My parents are great
Far greater than yours.

Not lucky but blessed
Better than the rest
Excess load on chest
Till altruism paid
Goodness never fade
Fat eggs their hens laid.
Others search for gold
And their stories told
Of unequal folds
Oh my parents glow
Fat brighter than yours.

Along the pivots
A load on the left
Makes the right regret
But my parents hold
Not refined but crude
Diamond, silver, gold
Seen as a harvest
From their labor fruit
God blessed my Parents
My parents are great
Far greater than yours.

Run from gossips

Loud the walls may talk;
Be careful they stalk
For greatness to fall
Like a tree, stand tall
To know that for sure,
Not all frames are door.

Nigeria: Twenty-third Century Blackman

His culture he held high
Until globalisation
Which is the narrow line
Between sanity and
Insanity widened.

There goes the Century man
Clean in words, stained in conscience,
Conducting church crusades
With thick red blood and guts
Disgorging from his hands.
